School counselors support student success, including improved ACT and SAT scores, more informed college decision-making, fewer disciplinary actions, improved attendance, and more. By working alone with students or teaming with classroom teachers and other education professionals, school counselors help students build the curiosity and academic skills needed to be the best learners possible. February 5-9, 2024, is designated National School Counseling Week to help raise awareness of the vital role these individuals play in schools. We invite you to take this opportunity to thank our school counselors: Eisenhower: LaDonna Erbe Jefferson: Ashley Evans IMS: Dayna O'Kane, Christina Mitts IHS: Teresa Jefferson, Valerie Schmitz BRIDGES: Mark Lasater
